Products from CAR on sale in Alabang
by PNA release

The Department of Trade and Industry in Cordillera opened its “Impakabsat,” a trade fair featuring various products of the region, at the Festival Mall in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

Freda Gawisan, DTI-Benguet officer, said the event, now on its 20th year, is a pre-Christmas sale of products produced by government-supported micro, small, and medium enterprises in the region.

“It is done in November because it is a pre-Xmas sale,” Gawisan said.

She said  that the trade fair will end on Dec. 2.

She said the “Impakabsat,” an Ilocano word meaning brotherhood, is a high-level trade fair conducted by the DTI regional office that allows the public to see and buy products made in the Cordillera without having to visit any part of the region. It is annually done prior to Christmas to give Metro Manila residents an alternative choice for their Christmas presents.

She said the fair showcases selected products coming from the six provinces and two cities of the region, such as processed food ranging from wines, jams, preserves, and pastries; loom woven items sold by yard and their finished products like pouch bags, ladies, and men’s bags, shawl, table runners and wall decors; handicrafts made of wood, bamboo; key chains, and other items that promote Baguio and the rest of the Cordillera.

She added that exhibitors from nearby towns, whose products are not the same and not in competition with the Cordillera products sold, were also invited to the event.

She said that the DTI regional office opted to have the event in Alabang, which is a highly-populated area.

“Previously, we had it at Megamall but the sales generated in Alabang was higher, which made us do it there. This is the sixth year in Alabang,” Gawisan added.
